thanks for being with us. >> greta: fox news alert. cut, cap and balance just passed by the republican controlled house of representatives. the vote was 234 to 190. the bill calls for slashing billions in immediate spending. caps future spending. and a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. much more on this straight ahead. but first, did you hear the other big news? senator coburn is back. he just reuped with the gang of six. he ditched them in may. now he's back. hours ago the gang announced a new debt plan. here's the hitch, yesterday senator coburn unveiled his own plan and then there's senate minority leader mcconnell's plan. which one of these plans is a sure fix? we asked senator coburn. yesterday the headlines why you had -- were you had a nine trillion plan. today you rejoined the gang of
six. if you -- can you tell me the difference between the two plans? >> 5.3 trillion. >> greta: i knew i was in trouble. >> one fixes our complete problem. one gets us out of truck as a country the other moves news the -- out of trouble as a country. the other moves us in the direction. if you want us to borrow at the best rates of anybody in the world and put our economy back where it needs to be, with vibrant job creating economy. then you would do this nine trillion dollars. that gets us out of the risk of default. gets it back growing. solves the problems. takes await shackles we've put on our kids and ground kids. realistically, i wasn't going to get 10, 12 votes for that. what can we do that sends the signal to the international financial community that we understand we have a serious problem.
>> greta: here's the problem with the 3.7 that you think can pass as opposed to your nine trillion. let's say it passed now. a year from now, couldn't congress get together and the president and change things? >> yeah, but very difficult. the plan requires 67 votes to do that. with 67 votes you can change anything with 67 votes. but 67 votes would be required to chain it to spend more, chain the caps -- to change it. to spend more, change the caps. my i deal think would be cut, cap and balance. now we are locked in forever. we have to live within the same confines that every american and every state has to live. >> greta: why isn't there an appetite to fix it once and for all? the american people are struggling. everybody is uncertain. the cut, cap and balance is one way to fix it permanently.
we had debt commission that was supposed to fix it. your nine trillion is supposed to fix it. now we are back to 3.7 and the gang of six, which is to keep things going. >> i think there's a deficit of courage. and this dual-mindedness that people want to do what is best as long as they can do what is best for their political career. when you put those two this opposition what happens careers tend to win out. i can't say it any more frankly. that's human nature, i understand. but it's a shame that's why republics die. my goal would be that we would cheat history that we would not go the way of every other republic in the world. get out of control on your fiscal matters and lose it. that's why we need to get back to the nine trillion. but the fact is, as we have a significant thing coming up august 2nd.
we need to be about seeing -- about fixing that or at least limiting the pain that the country going to have now so we can fix it later. >> greta: how is it different from for instance senator mcconnell got criticism, he wanted to do a three stage process kicking the can down the road is the phrase that has been used. the gang of six is not a fix it postpones -- >> but it is totally different than what senator mcconnell wants to do. he wants to give the spending increases and allow the president with a third of each body, to control that. and that is an answer if that's what we have to get do if that's the only option we have. we can't let the country default. i don't think we would default particularly. but the politics around that are big. but this is significant.
3.7 trillion is well over 40% of the way you have to get there to solve our problems. the fact that you can do that in a bipartisan way shows the american people there is some common sense up here there is some ability to give-and-take and starts us down the road. the other side of your question is what would keep us from not changing that? we have to change it. this is just 40% of the way. we have to get the other 60%. we are not going to be able to go back. the pressure is going to be us like the pressure on greece. it going to get heavier. >> greta: you say that with the gang of six proposal the 3.7 trillion the reason why we don't do the permanent fix because of lack of political courage. very disheartening to the american people to think the people we sent to washington lack the political courage to make the decisions that we need to face at this time. >> think about what i put in the nine trillion dollars. it is significant changes in the pentagon.
significant changes in terms of military retired military health care. significant changes to medicare, medicaid, social security. social security money it fixes it. how many people up here are gonna embrace what i think we need to do? not many. that's the problem. >> greta: it is opposing political party or people within your own party? >> no, it is a bipartisan problem. one of the reasons i'm a term limited member of senate, self-imposed because it gives me the ability to do what is right, not what is politically expedient. i'm not running for election again. i'm going to do what is best for the country not what is best for tom coburn or the republican part i'm going to do what i think is best for the country. i think you have a lot of people who want to do that and at times do that. a lot of times we don't stand
up is because we are thinking about the next election and interest groups that support us. the gang of six deal can be defeated if you let the special interests that don't want anything to happen, happen. what we have to have is we need people to stand up and say we are going to fix it. the gang of six is better than nothing. i would rather have a nine trillion - solution, we can do that. that has a trillion worth of new revenues that come from eliminating tax kpaoepbd and tax credits. i've -- expenditures and tax credits. as a doctor here's my prescription for fix wag is wrong with the country. would it lower our debt in 20-21 to about 12 trillion. >> greta: is it going to pass? >> gang of six or mine? >> my hope would be yes. >> what is next for the cult, cap and balance? does it stand a chance in the
senate? president obama issued his warning yesterday to house republicans. he said expect a veto. joining republican congressman, you won one step of the process. how about the senate what going to happen when it goes there? >> harry reid you better take this up for a vote. that's a reasonable expectation. five democrats joined us. i think it is reasonable to expect with the deadline looming of august 2nd, that the senate vote. >> greta: one thing to get a vote another thing to win. even if you persuade harry reid to give you that vote, do you expect to win it? >> i do. everybody said in the house it couldn't pass and it did. who is going to vote a balanced budget amendment? that is something that we should have broad bipartisan support for. >> greta: not all democrats agree with you even not all the republicans agree. michelle bachmann was a no to
the vote. it is an uphill battle. >> it is an uphill battle. but we over came that hill in the house. now i think the senate should take this up. >> greta: we'll see if -- by the way did you have any inside track? >> said he probably won't. the president said he's going to veto it. mr. president, what are you afraid of? all we asking is send to the state a balanced budget amendment. 3/4 of the states would have to ratify it for it to become an amendment to the constitution this argument is going to be about do you or do you not want to balance the budget? i don't know the president wants to balance the budget that is the discussion we are going to have. >> greta: he says he's going to veto it if it got to him. >> end send it to the president. i don't -- it to the president, i don't think he will veto it. i would like to call his bluff.
we are trying to solve the underlying problem. if the president wants to raise the debt ceiling so he doesn't have to deal with it until after the 2012 election then pass a balanced budget amendment. >> greta: let's assume you are not going to get a vet in the senate. if you did you would lose. [ unintelligible ] the gang of six, senator coburn says the gang of six idea is better than nothing, do you agree? >> i haven't read every detail. to the extent that it cuts spending, i like it. to the extent it raises taxes, i hate it. >> greta: will you vote for any proposal that raises taxes a dime? >> i want to solve the underlying problem. a balanced budget amendment will do that. >> greta: i got that. let's assume the gang six of -- gang of six plan. no to gang of six or no to raising taxes? >> both. we got a big win a couple
hours ago. >> greta: i understand that is until tomorrow. >> it is the only plan in town if the president wants to avert the crisis, get behind a balanced budget amendment and we can avert this crisis that's what the market and the american families need. >> greta: if the senate is in favor of the gang of six and majority in the house of representatives is in favor of gang of six you are out in the cold with your balance the budget. >> right now we are the only plan. >> greta: i know you are the only plan. you look down the road a bit, have you don't any headcounts? >> i don't want to punt. if mcconnell and harry reid are lining up in punt formation i hope the country will say block that punt. we have to solve the problem, the best way is a balanced budget amendment. i'm not giving up on that. >> greta: no plan b in your mind? >> we just passed something. no. >> greta: you have plan a and only plan a? >> that's an the on game in town now. first the president has no
plan. a lot of speeches, press conferences, no plan. nothing on a piece of paper. >> greta: congressman shea gets, nice to see you. . >> greta: that was a surprising outburst. hours ago news corp chairman ceo rupert murdoch was attacked by a protester. his wife jumped to her husband's defense. you can see wendy slapping the man in this video. murdoch with his son james, news corp's deputy chief operating officer went before the parliamentary committee to answer questions about the scandal that shutdown the news of the world tabloid. news corp closed the
1 8-year-old paper following accusations that staffers hacked the voice mail accounts of people they were covering. rebekah brooks the former rebekah brooks the former here's a look at highlights from today's hearing. >> mr. chairman, thank you. i would like to say just how sorry i am and how sorry we are to particularly the victims of illegal voice mail interceptions and their families. it is a matter of great regret of mine, my father's and everyone at news corporation. and these are standards, these actions do not live up to the standards that our company aspires to, as we are around the world. it is our determination to put things right. make sure these things don't happen again. and to be the company that i know we've always aspired to be. as for my comments and my statement which i believe was around the closure of the news of the world newspaper --
>> before you get to that. i would like to say one sentence this is the most humbled day of my life. thank you. >> do you accept that ultimately you are responsible for this whole fiasco? >> no. >> you are not responsible. who is responsible? >> the people that i trusted to run it and then maybe the people they trusted. i worked with mr. hinton for 52 years and i would trust him with my life. >> oh! >> as you said in earlier questions, do you not regard yourself as a chief executive. you work 10 to 12 hours a day. this terrible thing happened on your watch. mr. murdoch, have you considered resigning? >> no. >> why not? >> because i feel that people i trusted, have let me down.
and i think they behaved disgracefully, betrayed the company and me. and it is for them to pay. i think frankly, i'm the best person to clean this up. at no time do i remember being as sick ed as when i heard what the -- sickened as when i heard what the dowling family had to endure. which was last monday nor, do i recall being as angry when i was told that the news of the world could have compounded their distress. for a newspaper that hold others to account and failed when it came to itself. behavior that -- the behavior that occurred went everything that i stand for. and my son too. not only betrayed our readers and me, also hurt the many thousands of magnificent professionals in other
divisions of our company around the world. so let me be clear in saying, invading people's privacy, by listening to their voice mail is wrong. paying police officers for information is wrong. they are inconsistent with our standards of conduct and neither has any place in any part of the company that i run. >> of course there were mistakes made. i think and hope you will an since we saw the evidence at the end of defense we got to properly and quickly. i can say that i have never paid a policeman myself. i've never sang -- sanctioned or knowing sanctioned a payment to a police officer. >> greta: tomorrow british prime minister cameron is expected to testify. straight ahead, first republican businessman donald trump unloaded on president obama. now a democratic businessman
is all fired up. las vegas heavyweight steve wynn is hammering the president. hear from him, next. >> casey anthony news. spottings being reported nation by. is she reaching out to her parents? did she stop at home to pick up clothes? >> it didn't matter if you are the president, president obama is getting slapped with a fine. what did he do? what did he do? we are going to tell you in a [ malannouncer ] imagine facing the day with less chronic low back pain. imagine living your life with less chronic osteoarthritis pain. imagine you, with less pain. cymbalta can help. cymbalta is a non-narcotic treatment that's fda-approved to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain. one pill a day, every day, can help reduce this pain. tell your doctor right away if your mood worsens, you have unusual changes in mood or behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. cymbalta is not approved for children under 18. people taking maois or thioridazine

[ male announcer ] ask your doctor about cymbalta. imagine you, with less pain. cymbalta can help. go to to learn about a free trial offer.
>> greta: president obama can't be happy about this one. ceo and self-vibed democrat, steve wynn is trash talking the -- president's economic policies calling the administration a wet blanket on the business community. >> a president that seems, you know, that keeps using that word redistribution. well my customers and the companies that provide the vitality for the hospitality and restaurant industry, in the united states of america, they are frightened of this administration. the guy keeps making speeches about redistribution. maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, they are holding too much money. we haven't heard that kind of
talk except from pure socialists. >> greta: is the white house listening to this? joining us byron york. is he a real democrat or is he -- does he go both ways? >> used socialist that's a tea party criticism. he contributed to john mccain in 2008 many his wife is a democratic bundler. he supported kerry in '04 and a big supporter of harry reid who has been close to the gaming industry in nevada. he has supported both. he described himself as democrat and has supported democrats. >> greta: using the word socialist in reference to the president is -- do you know who he was speaking to? >> he was talking to a group of business analysts. you need to go back further. he's a powerhouse in the gaming community. president obama a couple of times in 2009 and 2010,
chastised once a banking group and once a group of the public saying you shouldn't blow all your money going to vegas. when times are tough you can't blow your money going to vegas. this made business people in las vegas apoplectic. the president was telling people not to spend their money in las vegas. he's had a troubled relationship with people in las vegas. >> greta: if you dig deeper he does say if he had more certainty about the economy that he could give 10,000 more jobs. he says the chamber of commerce said that would create 20,000 more jobs and 5 caution the [ unintelligible ] he isn't just throwing out the s word. >> he has been critical for a while. in 2009, he was saying the obama administration spent too much time on health care.
too much time on stimulus. they should have been giving big tax breaks to businesses that hire people this was the core of his criticism again. you have to remember, the hospitality industry has a lot of low wage workers. the health care law affects them a lot. ratcheting up the coverage that has to be given to low wage workers is something that has caused a lot of trouble in that industry. >> greta: if wynn declares war on the president because he's so influential, does that have any sort of 2012 implication for the president or not? >> if you are barack obama you want all the independent support you can get, coming up in 2012. you've got someone in wynn who is clearly open to supporting democrats. if he's not only not for you, but really you and speaking out publicly and is a powerful force in that business it is
not good for the white house. >> greta: is this so unique? this may be steve wynn in vegas but there are other big leaders, are you seeing more of these people? >> it is not unique. in the business world you hear the word uncertainy. they don't know what taxes are going to be next year. they know the president would like to raise some taxes. they feel like the obama administration has been too strong in regulation and has not created the certainty and comfort they would like that is a common feeling in the business community. >> greta: he says the president uses the word redistribution. >> that goes back to the s word. that's a very bad word among conservatives. i was surprised to hear wyn in using redistribution and socialism. those are very conservative critiques of obama. >> greta: byron, thank you. >> tv producer claims he just nabbed casey anthony's first interview. who is it?
what do casey's parents think? has casey been back to pick up her clothes? we asked the family's attorney mark lippman. >> the most controversial quarterback in the entire nfl is here, michael vick. wait until you see who is with him. michael vick goes on the record, next. mine was earned over the south pacific in 1943. vietnam, 1967. i got mine in iraq, 2003. u.s.a.a. autonsurance is often handed down from generation to generation, because it offers a superior level of protection and because u.s.a.a.'s commitment to serve the military, veterans, and their families is without equal. ben your lega. get an auto insurance quote. u.s.a.a. we know what it means to serve. a network of possibilities. in here, the planned combination of at&t and t-mobile would deliver our next generation mobile broadband experience
to 55 million more amecans, many in small towns and rural communities, giving them a new choice. we'll deliver better service, with thousands of new cell sites... f greater access to all the things you want, whenever you want them. it's the at&t network... and what's possible in here is almost impossible to say. that's me with the blow dryer and the at iron until i see smoke. so pantene said, "breakage and split ends? no problem." they gave me this pantene called bakage to strength. [ female announcer ] the keratin protection pro-v system helps prevent then repair split ends. zero fear of breakage, 100% more strength. no regrets, just health. i'm not giving up the heat. [ female announcer ] the breakage to strength system from pantene.
>> greta: he shook up the sports world. convicted dog killer. now he's an animal rights
activist. nfl quarterback michael vick was on capitol hill today lobbying for legislation, targeting the illegal sport. the bill would criminalize spectators and others organize the fighting. vick was relaced from prison in 2009 after 20 months for a dogfighting conviction. michael vick and the president and ceo of the humane society went on the record. michael nice to see both of you. >> thank you. >> full disclosure michael. everyone knows i'm a big animal lover. but i'm also a big believer in rehabilitation. you did your time and now you are working with wayne that's a good endorsement, not mention tony dungy who is a good friend of the program. >> yes, i've been in great company since i walked out of those prison doors. it has been a great working relationship with wayne and what we've been able to accomplish. it is gratifying to see that we are making a difference in
communities all over the world and helping masses of people. >> greta: why are you in washington now? >> we are here to lob which -- to lobby. michael and i have visiting a lot of cities and speaking to kids and young machine. especially in at-risk communities. there's been a surge in dogfighting. we call it street fighting. kids are squaring up pit bulls we think that prevention work is important. we also need policies that deter this activity. frankly, bring people to justice when they knowingly violate the law and engage in this cruelty to animals. mike and i were up on the hill today meeting with lawmakers and urging them to adopt new crimes for being a expect day for or bringing a child to -- spectator. or bringing a child. people bring a 7, 8 or 10-year-old kid, a parent to watchdogs fighting or roosters fighting. >> greta: in your new book, i
didn't realize you got involved in dogfighting at age eight. i never heard of it until your case. >> in the community i group up in it was prevalent. it was something i was exposed to a lot of the older guys exposed myself and others to it. it was just something that we learned to do. i didn't know whether it was right or wrong. we were just involved and never got any type of indication whether it was the right thing or wrong thing to do. >> greta: you guys seem like an unlikely duo based on your history if you read the book, you stand you met him first in prison. >> mike reached out through some of his people and said he wanted to do some anti-dogfighting work with the humane society. we have the most developed programs on the law making and prevention side. mike knows this, it was with a great deal of conflict i went out there.
our community and constituency was very down on mike and what he did, understandably so. but i thought to myself, what are we about at the humane society? we are about change about not treating people in some static position and having them indefinitely in that place. we want people moving along to a better place. the other thing is the biggest problem we've been facing with dogfighting is this urban-based dogfight . in the cities it became prevalent. i thought, if mike was sincere and going to put boots on the ground who better to reach these young kids than michael vick. much to his credit it has been two years, more than 10,000 kids one-on-one and now we are trying to change the atmosphere of the issue and change the laws. >> greta: it is interesting in the book. wayne writes that you love
animals. and it is hard, you have become the poster child for anything but loving animals. how do you sell someone that you will have animals? how can you convince me you love animals? >> i understand it is a direct conflict. like i've said over and over again, it is something i had to deal with over and over again. because, i know my love and passion for animals. but i still ask myself why get involved? and why get so detailed in what i was doing? >> greta: why did you? >> i hate to use it as an excuse, but -- i know if you know better you are supposed to do better. i can honestly say i didn't know. i didn't think that i would ever get caught or get punished behind it. >> greta: did you enjoy -- i don't want to get too graphic i know you've done your time. even wayne writes about the fact that you tortured dogs, holding them water. to me it is unthinkable.
how do you do that? >> it is tough. when you are caught up in the lifestyle and when you are being pro-active and srfled you are not worrying about what people think or what is right. -- you just react and doing it. you just kind of do everything unconsciously. >> greta: the animals must have struggled? >> it was tough. like i said, it was tough. my thing right now is just about making change. that's the reason i'm sitting here with wayne that's the reason we have such a great relationship. because i'm trying to help more animals than i hurt. i think that's what it is about. the reason we were up on the hill, trying to keep kids doing the same thing, going down the same path. making change. >> greta: you don't have to do this, right? this isn't a condition of any parole or probation, right? >> no. >> greta: this is totally because michael vick wants to
do it? >> yes, ma'am. >> greta: are you getting paid? >> home. >> greta: total volunteer -- no ma'am. >> greta: total volunteer. >> whenever wayne calls we talk about it and make it happen. >> greta: what was prison like? >> it was tough, i don't recommend it on anybody. >> greta: first thing you walk in some people are big stars, were you a big celebrity walking into prison? >> i did my first 60 years in solitary. >> greta: how was that? >> it was tough. the only people i could call on was my mom and my sisters and my fiance and the people who i cared about the most. but it definitely made me a stronger person. >> greta: i would imagine that was hell sitting alone for 60 days. people don't realize it is tougher to be in solitary than the general population. >> because you have to find ways to make use of your time.
those are the things that i tell the kids out there. you don't want to be put in that position. because, everybody can't handle certain things. and i think i went through what i went through for a reason. and that's the reason i'm trying to make an impact in the community around the world, globally, internationally. i just think everything happens for a reason. >> greta: did you ever feel sorry for yourself in prison? here you were unbelievably talented making so much money, everything was so great. >> i didn't feel sorry for myself. i was ashamed about what i had done to myself and to those animals. and it could all have been an individualed. and i got nothing out of it. the sad part was i was just about to walk away from it. but, i think it happened at
such a time where i could be here doing what i'm doing now. and saving lives and helping kids. >> greta: why are you so good at football, what makes you so good? >> god given ability. >> greta: how much is discipline? >> it is a lot of discipline. a lot of things i had to learn over the course of the years to make myself a successful player. things that i learned the last two years, and doing a lot of studying in prison. made me a much better football player. >> greta: there's much more of our interview on so go watch. >> from casey anthony sightings to lawsuits. casey's ears have got to be ringing. have her parents heard from her? did they know where she is? mark lippman is here. >> president obama has some explaining to do. he got a fine that story is he got a fine that story is straight ahead.

>> from america's news headquarters, i'm ainsley earhardt. a deadline now quickly approaching for lawmakers to avoid a possible shut down of the federal aviation authority. the house and legislature are fighting over continuing funding the agency. the faa has been operating under a temporary measure which expires on friday. air traffic controllers would continue to work, even if the two sides do want reach a deal. a mother and her three daughters are dead after their van was swept away on a washed-out mountain highway in wyoming. the family from colorado was trying to escape torrential rains. the father survived and is being treated in a hospital. a local emergency vehicle responding to that accident was also swept away. that driver suffered minor injuries. i'm ainsley earhardt. we now return to "on the record" with gret a. for the headlines, go to our web site, thanks for watching us.
have a great morning. >> greta: it is getting as bad as elvis sightings. now it is casey anthony sightings. is she in florida, california? rumors of sightings of casey are flying and all over. do casey's parents know where she is? were they asked to be decoys during her release sunday? joining us mark lippman the anthony family attorney. good evening mark. >> good evening. >> greta: do the parents even know where casey is at this point? >> no. the family has no idea where these at. all we know is that she is safe. >> greta: do they want to know where she is? >> they have a legitimate concern for her safety. they want to make sure wherever she is, that someone is taking care of her. if they needed to know because
nobody was taking care of her they would be asking. i've been repeatedly assured she is safe. >> greta: there was a report that the parents were asking to be some sort of decoy the other night when all of us were scrambling to see where she was going after she was)tr released. were they really asked to be a decoy? >> yeah. i had a conversation with mr. baez. i think he was extremely nervous and frustrated with the way things were going. and i believe it was a5 ñ[ñ last minute decision for him. we quickly discussed it and both felt that it wasn't necessary for his plan to go forward, whatever that plan was. certainly, myself and my clients weren't part of that plan. >> greta: i can understand mark, how things have deteriorated in the family. of course i remember the accusations of the child molesting towards george, which he has denied.
i'm curious if there's any sort of effort to looking for to the future to reconcile this family? >> certainly, my clients are at the time they feel they are ready to speak, they will speak to that at this time, they are waiting to see what casey has to say when they talk -- if they do talk, they will make a decision as to what the future holds. >> greta: has jose baez made any effort to get her clothes from the family home? >> again, for safety purposes, i'm not going to go into the clothing issue or any other speculation as to where she may be. today there was lots of running around because somebody thought they saw her in orlando. probably the last place she would show up. >> greta: i know it is like elvis sightings. i'm curious, did you see the article about the prosecutors and the chloroform?
